Intermittent fasting is currently trending in the health world right now and for good reason. As more research is being conducted on the benefits of an IF diet, the more researchers are finding evidence that this new diet may decrease risk factors for a multitude of diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. However, the one question everyone seems to be focusing on is whether or not intermittent fasting is beneficial for weight loss.
The answer is yes.
Earlier this week a new study was released via the journal Cell Research that studied the effects of intermittent fasting using mice as the test subjects. The study lasted for 16 weeks and the researchers found that the mice that had been placed on an IF diet weighed much less in the control group. This study showcases something that previous research had not covered, which was the study of the metabolic benefits of being on an intermittent fasting diet. Previous research had found intermittent dieting to be effective for weight loss, but many of those studies followed participants for a few months, with many dropping out due to being unable to stick to the diet.
This leads us into the two videos below that will help teach you how to go about tackling an intermittent fasting diet for weight loss purposes.
